Ketogenic Diet Therapies

Dieta cetogénica - Spanish Version

Welcome! Here you will find information and resources regarding the ketogenic diet, a high fat, low carbohydrate treatment for epilepsy. This treatment started in the United States in 1921, fell out of favor in the 1940s, but has seen a resurgence since the 1990s. In the past decade, the ketogenic diet has seen exponential growth around the world

The Dietary Treatments Task Force of the ILAE Medical Therapies Commission was created to help meet the growing need for information and resources regarding the ketogenic diet.

We hope you find this site useful in your region of the world. Please contact Anita Devlin, Dietary Treatments Task Force chair, with any questions or ideas.
